“Every entrepreneur is a problem solver, find a problem and you too can achieve maximum success”, says Dr. Samms-Brown as she opened up for the Savannah State University Entrepreneurship Day.
Entrepreneurship Day is a formal forum that allows local high school students the exposure and interaction with actual college student entrepreneurs. In this forum, there was four interviewees that answered a series of questions that detailed their experiences as student entrepreneurs and what advice they would give the young high school students who wish to pursue entrepreneurship.
As I surveyed the auditorium, many students seemed receptive to the many anecdotes of adversity and triumph. Many of them were eager with hands raised to speak to the panelists about their upbringing and inspirations. Johnson High School Senior, Jaquan Oliver stated, “I really enjoyed this. I personally want to become a barber and the guy Jeffrey gave me his business card and said he will teach me!” This gratitude was filled through the Howard Jordan auditorium as students shook hands and greeted the entrepreneurs, and others took Instagram photos to show friends later.
Ultimately, this year's Entrepreneurship Day had a successful turnout and seemed to have had a successful outcome.
